The Board of Trustees of U of Illinois Facilities Planning and Programs hereby requests sealed bids for construction work on the Memorial Stadium High Voltage Feed and Winterization at the Urbana Campus project.

Project Description
The project consists of the installation of two 15KV to 480/277V, 750/1000MVA unitized substations under the east and west stadium steps. A 15KV S&C switch will be installed in existing Load Center #2. 15KV cables will be routed from this switch to each of the new unitized substations. This will involve installation of 15KV ductlines and manholes and routing steel conduit through the unexcavated area below the stadium steps. Ceiling mount heaters, fed from the unitized substations, will be installed in the restrooms throughout the east and west halls. Spare conduits will be installed to the restrooms for the future installation of hand dryers. Concrete slabs will be installed below the steps for support of the unitized substations and for storage space. The area below the steps is unexcavated and may require removal of spoils. The unitized substations and the S&C switch will be furnished by UIUC, installed by the contractor.
